Our first ewe of the 2009 lambing season!
We have been watching Curley very closely since we realized that she had unintentionally gotten bred. (At least we did not mean to have her bred, obviously someone had other intentions having to cross the fence to accomplish the feat)
Curley is our only pure bred Romney ewe, is getting very old, and has prolapsed in the past. But, she also produces a very beautiful black fleece to earn her keep.
So, this year we got a bonus, a ewe lamb. And without dealing with a prolapse.
A black and silver 14 lb 5 oz ewe.
She should be able to hold her own with all those pesky boys.
They looked really worried don’t they?
